Cycle Through Europe

Cycle Through Europe

European countries are popular destinations for U.S. citizens, and biking tours in Europe are just one of many experiences that you can partake in. Cycling trips allow you to explore the continent at your own pace while being out in nature and improving your fitness.

Many of the cycling trails across Europe offer beautiful views you won’t be able to find anywhere else in the world. Some of the most popular countries for cycling vacations include Italy, Spain, and France, so you can be confident there’ll be great food for all the family at the end of your bike ride.

Horseback Riding In Utah

We know how popular horseback riding can be amongst Americans, and Utah is the perfect place to do it. Here, you’ll be able to enjoy stunning views, superb trails, and some of the best horses that the country has to offer. Most children also love animals, so this is a great way for them to spend time with horses and get to grips with riding.

Utah’s varying weather means you can visit at just about any time in the year. Whether you prefer riding in the cold or the hot, Utah’s the place for your horse-riding vacation.

Family Safaris In Africa

Family Safaris In Africa

An African safari is the perfect activity for any outdoorsy family. Explore enchanting lands filled with animals in their natural habitat to make memories that will last a lifetime. Safaris are normally a combination of education, adventure, and wildlife observation, and are a magical experience that would never be possible in normal walks of life.

Because there is so much to love about safaris, they can be enjoyed by people of all ages. So, whether you’re a young or older family, there’s no time like the present to book an African safari tour.

Camping Anywhere

Camping is possible at about anywhere in the world, making it a wonderful way to enjoy time away with the rest of the family. This type of getaway is enjoyed by more than 50 million U.S. Americans according to recent data, and you can tailor your camping trip to your family’s preferences to make it extra special.

Find an accessible and scenic spot (even if it’s just your backyard!) and set up camp together. You can even use old camping gear and bring sack lunches to be more budget-friendly. What could be more wholesome than sitting around the campfire under the stars and sharing stories?


If your family likes to keep active, you should go on a trip that fulfills your idea of fun. Don’t conform to a relaxing beach vacation if this won’t keep you entertained! So, get active whilst you’re away by celebrating what you like doing together in the new year.
